I went in to the retinal specialist’s office today to get a periodic injection in my left eye to help mitigate wet macular degeneration. I’m doing pretty well, all things considered, and I thought I’d get more posted this evening. However, the aftereffects have slowed me down enough to keep me from doing much tonight.
I’ll just leave you with this news about the Confederate memorial at Arlington National Cemetery (which is located on what used to be Robert E. Lee’s plantation in antebellum days). It was designed by a Jewish sculptor who served in the Confederate army, and has stood at that location for more than a hundred years. However, the federal government is determined to erase all memory of the Confederacy from national institutions and public spaces, so the memorial has to go.
Below is a video about the issue that was produced by the Sons of Confederate Veterans. It is narrated by an annoying computer voice, but there’s nothing I can do about that:
After the Civil War was over, the country was allegedly reunited. Part of the process was to allow Southerners to recognize and commemorate their heritage within the same fora where Union veterans were remembered. But that was then, and this is now. We can forget being “united”. The South has been VANQUISHED, and it must know the humiliation of having its past erased.
The SCV is mounting a valiant effort to mail-blitz senators and congresscreatures, but I don’t think it will do any good. The Woke tide is at the flood. It means to sweep away everything it deems “racist”, and there’s no way of stopping it.
Except for secession, of course.
